It also does little besides stop further attacks and deterrance. I mean, you could glass over all the land between the DMZ and the Tumen River, but you'd still have to deal with fallout on your own territory.

Although I've noticed something with Iran and North Korea's nuclear ambitions- their close neighbors focus more on compromises, while the United States, which is nearly on the other side of the Earth, takes a harder approach.
